Read Reviews of IKO Shingles
IKO makes and sells a number of shingle styles throughout the world.
Some examples include:
- Cambridge, laminated to last from 30 to 50 years, depending on shingle strengths. They are a premium architectural style shingle.
- Crowne Slate shingles, which give the roof a slate appearance, but weigh less than actual rock.
- Grandeur shingles, which are fiberglass-based and one of IKO's top-of-the-line models.
- Regency shingles, which look like a genuine wood shake roof, but are laminated.
- Royal Victorian shingles, which resemble Dutch clay tiles and consist of fiberglass and asphalt.
- Gentry asphalt shingles, which come in a variety of styles and are an all-purpose shingle.
IKO was founded in 1951 in Alberta, Canada, and began manufacturing and selling asphalt- soaked paper for building construction. In 1954 they began selling roofing shingles, and eventually began operating in Europe. They opened their first US plant in 1979 in Wilmington, Delaware.
Shingle warranties depend on the composition and strength of the individual line. Most companies carry several lines with a variety of styles. IKO offers their "Iron Clad" warranty to all shingles. It covers the cost of repair or replacement, including labor charges, for up to five years.
Terms of their standard limited warranty vary from 30, 40, to 50 years and cover wind velocity ranging from 70 mph to 110 mph. All of their shingles are class "A" fire rated, the highest rating in that category.
IKO shingles with algae protection are warranted for 5 to 10 years, depending on the shingle brand and style.
Always study the warranty carefully before you purchase roofing shingles, as terms can vary and be confusing.
